This was on our definite to-do list while in SD. Our Uber driver on another day told us Sunset Cliffs wasn't a big deal, you're not missing out if you don't go, etc. SO GLAD we didn't listen to him!

Sunset Cliffs is one of my favorite spots to visit when I'm in San Diego. It's fun to explore the cliffs and see all of the littles holes and nooks. However, it can be dangerous so be careful.

Bring a jacket as the breeze at sunset may be cool. Well worth the time for people watching, listening to the surf and gorgeous colors as the sun sinks over the ocean.

Sunset Cliffs is truly a fantastic sight to see with the crashing waves and the view out to the sea. Visited during the day so we didn't see the sunset, of course, but it was still quite beautiful.

This was our first stop, we walked and waited for the sunset, it was simply beautiful. Take a camera and capture the moments of the sunset, perfect outing for a relaxed evening.

I have relatives in area and spend a couple times a year in area. Amazing views. Have seen some picture taking sunsets over the last few years. Watch your step, as it is very dangerous for young kids, older people. Great place to hang out to enjoy ocean views near a cliff.

although illegal if the tide is high and the surf is calm you can jump off the cliffs into the ocean. Certainly not for the faint at heart. a very romantic stretch of cliffs that eats away at your soul years after you leave. A must see every time I'm in San Diego.

This beach, with the pacific cliffs and crashing waves, is beautiful but I'm not sure it stands out in San Diego with so many amazing options.

This is such a great place! Breathtaking and must-see at sunset. It's an easy drive and easy walk. It's a great place to unwind.

This was very close to the area where I stayed. I walked down one night to watch the sunset, and it did not disappoint. It was gorgeous. Lots of people gather and it's a really nice place to be. Highly recommended.
